Research

The School of Geography hosts a team of Biogeographers who investigate the distribution of species and ecosystems in geographic space and through geological time.

Our research focuses on the drivers of species and ecosystem diversity, the role of disturbance in shaping biological systems and the impact of human activity on species composition and diversity.  We are actively engaged with researches from many disciplines, including botany, zoology and earth science and we presently work on a range of systems across the Southern Hemisphere.  We are involved in research that aims to understand the role of fire in the Australian landscape, the influence of climatic change on natural systems and the key drivers of ecological diversity through time.
